Megan finds herself in a very motivational situation. She is broke, hungry and has $3 in the bank. She called me on her way to the mall. She is going to submit job applications. It’s something she really has been needing to do. I’ve been after her to try and get a part-time job so she could start earning money of her own. I thought she might have found a part-time job working with her uncle but that sort of “went away”.
She’s now understanding what it’s like to live “paycheck to paycheck” but it’s not her check, yet. Suggestions I’ve made in the past went unheeded. She did attempt to make a commitment to pay certain bills but that was when she had a part time job. Now she’s in over her head because she doesn’t have a part-time job anymore, and gas, food and prices in general have gone up.
It’s times like this that I wished she lived a lot closer, I could put her to work for me – she doesn’t need a college education to help me. I still want her to get one though.
